We're delighted that TAG Fine Arts' co-founder Diana Ewer and artist Katsutoshi Yuasa have been invited to participate in the Second International Printmaking Symposium 'SNAP 2012' in Rheine, Germany (27 - 30 September 2012).

Presented by the Print Association Bentlage and the cultural institution Kloster Bentlage, SNAP is an international platform for the printmaking industry. This year it asks: "Is printmaking a dying medium  or an upcoming subject of renaissance?"

The London Sale at Christie's


A collection of fantastic London-related lots have been on display at Christie's South Kensington over the summer and went under the hammer this afternoon for The London Sale. There was a lot of interest in the room and online, and a real buzz to the proceedings, which saw Tobias Till's London A-Z achieve £10,000 and Stephen Walter's London Subterranea £7,500. We'd like to congratulate them both!

Other highlights included a double-decker Routemaster bus, which achieved £67,250, and Simon Patterson's 'The Great Bear' which featured in our Art of Mapping exhibition last year and fetched £25,000. We recommend looking through the full catalogue for a wonderful array of exhibits.
